The world according to Americans
The Czech Republic had to issue a "Hey, dumb Americans, it wasn't us" statement following the Boston bombings because so many of us flooded social media with hate and vitriol toward the Czech Republic thinking the bombers came from there instead of Chechnya. Only dumb, self-centered, gov't-educated Americans would make that mistake and it's because this(cartoon) is the actual view of the world for most Americans.
When did we stop teaching basic world geography? It's embarrassing that we are willfully this ignorant as a nation.
H/T to PlancksConstant for the map.
